Burton Local Outbreak Control
Burton Extra – New advice for Anglesey, Shobnall, Horninglow and Eton Park
The Government brought in new laws in England on Monday 14 September, in a bid to stop the spread of Covid-19.
In Burton, despite local efforts, the number of cases continues to rise. We are also introducing new Extra rules that Burton residents must follow along with the new national laws.
Unless people do, it is likely that the Government will step in and Burton could be put under “lockdown” with further bans on activities and businesses forced to close.
Burton Extra: How the Extra measures apply to you
- England: Anyone with symptoms must stay home and get a Covid-19 test. If you test positive you will need to stay home for 10 days. Children should not be sent to school if they have symptoms.
